“What is Christmas? It is the tenderness of the past, courage for the present, and hope for the future."

Dear Friends and Residents of Abaco;
 
As the Holidays are fast approaching and the end of the year is in sight, we begin to look back on the events of an extraordinary year.  Abaco continues to face many struggles as we recover from Hurricane Dorian, but we are encouraged by the slow and steady progress that is being made. We are excited about the progress and the road that lies ahead and would like to share a few updates with you:
 
COVID 19 cases have been trending down in The Bahamas since late October. On November 18th, the seven day average of new cases reported was 13, down from a seven day average of 82 on October 21st. COVID Vaccines are becoming more readily available and as of November 19th, 34% of the population in the Bahamas were fully vaccinated. *From JHU CSSE COVID-19 Data
 

Our Home Repair Program is in full swing and we recently completed our 10th home in repair in Treasure Cay Township. Our Program Manager, Kelly Thurston, is overseeing this program and working with local contractors to return the residents to safe and healthy living conditions.

An agreement has been reached between the Treasure Cay Home Owners Associations and The Water and Sewerage Corporation whereby the HOAs will assist with the purchase of new lift stations and WSC will install new sewer pipes. A treatment solution will be developed in the second phase. Abaco Strong will facilitate the collection and dispersal of funds from the HOA to vendors via a separate LLC and US bank account.

Abaco Strong will host a Christmas Celebration for the children in Treasure Cay Township in collaboration with local government and the residents. This is the time of year when we rely on your generosity and support to bring the magic of Christmas to Abaco. You can help by purchasing a gift from the Amazon Wishlist or making a donation.

Thank you as always for your support and for helping us to bring Christmas to Abaco.
 
 
Stay Abaco Strong,

Martha Fleury

Abaco Youth Baseball Update

Abaco Youth Baseball practices have resumed in Murphy Town and Coopers Town, and our young athletes have been scrimmaging on Saturdays. They were supported by a very enthusiastic cheering section of friends and families.This is a great example of how youth sports can help bring communities together.

Backyard Farming in Treasure Cay

Timothy Sands and Huel Moss talked about the benefits of Hydroponic and Aquaponic Farming at our first meeting of The Treasure Cay Backyard Farmers. Seeds, pots, planting mix, top soil, and fertilizer were distributed, and we learned about the types of food our backyard farmers are growing. Crops include tomatoes, greens, peppers, sugar apples, sweet potatoes, bananas, mangos, and soursop to name a few. Look for more information on our Community Aquaponic Garden coming in 2022.
Thank you for Supporting our efforts to rebuild lives in Abaco
